We're far from Blink being the only engine :)

All the times I've tried windows phone, I just couldn't see myself using it or recommending it to anyone. It's time for it to die I think.

I know it sounds crazy, but in certain contexts it does make sense. This talk helps explain the when/why: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NoaxsCi13yQ :+1:

Ya. It's been a laundry list of issues right before Google forked it in to Blink. I'd love to see it come full circle and have Apple merge Blink in to Webkit so we can have a nice chunk of browsers on the same engine. Or at least Apple just give up on Webkit and move to Blink....ha.

"Before the placebo pills, the lifters added an average of 5.8 lbs (2.6 kg) to their squat during the first 7 weeks of training. After they believed they were taking steroids, they added an average of 41.8 lbs (18.9 kg) in just 4 more weeks of training. That’s a 7x increase in nearly half the time."

Holy wow Apple music looks like a disaster
Apple just threw its hat into the music streaming ring. Will its onboarding make or break its ability to oust the likes of Spotify, Rdio, and others?

Love seeing this
 
One of the big complaints about Chrome currently is that it's a battery hog, especially on Mac where Safari seems to do better.

The team has been working on addressing this; here are some cases that have recently been improved on trunk:

http://crbug.com/460102

Before: Renderers for background tabs had the same priority as for foreground tabs.
Now: Renderers for background tabs get a lower priority, reducing idle wakeups on various perf test, in some cases by significant amounts (e.g. 50% on one test).

http://crbug.com/485371

Before: On a Google search results page, using Safari's user agent to get the same content that Safari would, Chrome incurs ~390 wakes over 30s and 0.3% CPU usage vs. Safari’s 120 wakes over 30s and 0.1% CPU usage.
Now: 66% reduction in both timer firings and CPU use. Chrome is now incurring ~120 wakes over 30s and 0.1% CPU use, on par with Safari.

http://crbug.com/489936

Before: On capitalone.com, Chromium incurs ~1010 wakeups over 30s vs. Safari's ~490 wakes.
Now: ~30% reduction in timer firings. Chrome is now incurring ~721 wakeups over 30s.

http://crbug.com/493350

Before: On amazon.com, Chromium incurs 768 wakups over 30s and consumes ~0.7% CPU vs. Safari's 312 wakes over 30s and ~0.1% CPU.
Now: ~59% reduction in timer firings and ~70% reduction in CPU use. Chrome is now incurring ~316 wakeups over 30s, and 0.2% CPU use, on par with Safari at 312 wakes, and 0.1% CPU use.

The Chrome team has no intention of sitting idly by (pun intended) when our users are suffering.  You should expect us to continually improve in this area.
